Gamesa has launched a new wind turbine: the G114-2.0 MW Class IIIA, which the company says is designed especially for low-wind sites.

The 2 MW G114 turbine features a 114-meter-diameter rotor with a swept area of 10,207 square meters. According to the company, these dimensions lead to a 38% increase in swept area and a 20% increase in annual energy output compared with the G97-2.0 MW turbine.

The new blade, which spans 55.5 meters, also enables maximum energy production with reduced noise output levels, according to Gamesa. The machine offers a range of tower-height options (from 93 meters to 140 meters or higher, depending on the target location).

Gamesa will begin manufacturing initial prototypes of the G114-2.0 MW in the third quarter of 2013, with the first turbine deliveries to begin at the end of 2013. Beginning in 2014, the company will manufacture the series in all of the regions in which it has a manufacturing presence.
